Help buy the horses from slaughterhouse

Hello! First of all, I'm sorry for my English. I'm from Ukraine, Sevastopol. In the village near our city gave the owner of horses that have long rolled children to slaughter, because he no longer needed. Caring people bought most of the horses, but there is still a mare with a foal. Foal is 6 months old, his name is Martin, he's very friendly. Horse-mother is called Silence. She is good-natured, kind, long time skated children. Now in a very bad condition, weak, emaciated. At slaughter of almost no food, water, very little.
There are people ready to buy Martin, but he did not have enough money to take the Silence. The owner wants $ 940 for two. Today has already collected $ 450. Please help in this situation, the horse can be evacuated.
This Silence was before as soon as possible.

So it looks like now

It's Martin

There is an international bank card and WebMoney, ready to provide data to anyone who wants to help.

Your kidding right? Your first post on an open forum is to ask people to send money to an international bank?

I'm sorry, maybe I wrote a posting to the wrong thread? Where do you see the joke? We're trying to find in Sevastopol funds to rescue horses. We turned on the local forums too.

I only donate to local organizations where I can go and check out the facilities, and never to private individuals wanting to buy an animal.

I admire your desire to help the mare and foal, but it's rather odd that your very first post on this board is to beg for money. We don't know you, we don't know these horses, and we sure as heck don't know if it's just a scam to try and get good hearted people to donate money for animals that may not even exist.

Sorry, but you need to canvass your own communities and local resources for the money, not beg for funds from people in other countries.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I dont think that you meant to cause any offense to anyone but what you have to realise is that here in the US we also have a huge problem with unwanted horses in need of care and rescue
We have to take care of our own ahead of looking to the needs of horses in other countries
Good luck in your efforts to help these poor animals

Thank you for your attention to the subject. I understand how my post seems suspicious. As I wrote, my English is very bad, so you become known on other issues was impossible. We simply consider any solutions to the problem, because the time is very short. Prove the truth of threads can only photographs and links to Russian forum, which also collected funds.

If the person cannot afford the purchase price, how are they going to be able to afford to care for the horses after they've been saved?

I'm surprised the slaughterhouse wants the foal... not much meat to be had.

This is my concern, as well. In my opinion, it's better the horse have a quick end than a life full of uncertainties with an owner that can't afford to feed and care for him.
